wait, who's the sock puppet and who's childish and tactless...

You are the sock puppet, and everybody involved with the running of this site are tactless and childish.

Really, have you read anything else on this forum besides this thread...This account was created in February. Do you think they held onto a sock puppet account for 7 months just to attack you personally?

FTL is FTL. It's not the Gene show (just using that as an example, no offense to Gene intended). Anyone who calls more than once a week expecting more than a few minutes of time as a caller simply needs to go do their own show. Then they can have all the time they want. Or, if they have something more critical to say that is not being said elsewhere, ask for a lengthier interview.

I figured that out as a newish listener and new caller. I enjoyed the rush of having a public stage for my views so I called in 2 or 3 times a week for a few weeks... and I found myself waiting, and waiting, and waiting. Then I realized that I was one of those "chronic callers" that they mention on the show, and cut it back to a couple times a month.

So last night I called in for the first time in a few months, using my BBS name instead of my actual first name for the first time. And guess how long I waited? A FREAKING HOUR AND A HALF!!! Oh horrors! It's censorship! I think I'll make a thread on the BBS to complain!

...Or not, because the reason I waited so long is because, contrary to the position of the OP, they had a lengthy, reasonable discussion with someone with contrary views, which took almost a half an hour (if I remember correctly), then there was the news, and then two more people in front of me. And then I had my turn, and I think it went pretty well.

Perhaps if the OP decided to try it for himself, he would realize how wrong he is -- and that is why he almost certainly will not.
